What <i>Really</i> Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else

by Geoff Colvin

What’s the real solution to the mystery of high performance?  According to distinguished journalist Geoff Colvin, what really makes all the difference is a highly specific kind of effort, what he calls “deliberate practice.”  It’s difficult. It hurts. But more of it equals better performance. Tons of it equals great performance.
